This Recording is limited to 200 copies and considering the recent ebay auctions of previous UltraMagnetic rare acetates this release won't be available for a long period of time and the price will eventually skyrocket!! Marc Davis and his label Black Pegasus link up with his big homie T.R. Love from legendary UltraMagnetic MC's and form the Ultra 7 Series on Black Pegasus!!

Ricky Rude follows up the recent release of his mixtape "Ready to Live" with an MTV supported video single entitled "Top of the World." On the record Ricky Rude spits his observations about life growing up with music aspirations and wanting to change the world with his words. The track is brutally honest, which Ricky says is a vital component to his music. “People relate to honesty,” explains Ricky, “because it’s through lyrics that fans recognize flaws in themselves.”

Gangsta Boo and La Chat Get Wicked with Witch LP (@DJPaulKOM @GangstaBooQOM @DaRealLaChat)

Known for their hardcore lyrics and hyper-feminist attitudes, Memphis rappers Gangsta Boo and La Chat are joining forces for the collaborative album Witch this Spring. Slated for release on May 27, 2014, the Witch album will go down in history as a rare occasion where two solo female rappers convene on an extended project.



Joining this daring duo on Witch will be DJ Paul of Three 6 Mafia, Canadian power-pop sensation Fefe Dobson, former No Limit Records queen bee Mia X, Frayser Boy, Lil Wyte and JellyRoll. Production from DJ Paul, Drumma Boy, DJ Squeeky, The Colleagues, Gezin Beats and more will drive the hard-as-nails delivery that fans of Gangsta Boo and La Chat have come to expect.

With nearly two decades of notoriety as the first and only lady of Three 6 Mafia, Gangsta Boo has recorded three solo projects and a plethora of mixtapes. In addition to the five Three 6 Mafia albums she was involved in, Boo has appeared on collaborative projects with the Hypnotize Minds crew and Prophet Posse, as well as teaming with the likes of Outkast, Lil Jon, Foxy Brown, T.I., Gucci Mane, Yelawolf and more for guest appearances.

The recording of Witch with La Chat and the upcoming Da Mafia 6ix album will be major marks for her collaborative efforts, as she prepares to release her next solo album.

Former Hypnotize Minds artist La Chat hit the masses in 2001 with her debut album Murder She Spoke, and her appearance on Project Pat's hit single "Chickenhead" that same year earned her Gold status. La Chat went on to record three solo albums, and dropped the Krumbz to Brickz mixtape with Tha Trap-A-Holics in 2011. She has plans to release a solo album in the near future as well.

"We are still out here going hard," says La Chat. "We finally giving the fans what they want, and this just the beginning. It was fun working on this project, we were blessed to get top producers and features, and strong staff and support. And of course me and Boo did us!"

Gangsta Boo also expresses excitement over the synergy on Witch:
"I love 'Bitchy' with Mia X because it's a classic remake, produced by the greatest producer of all time to me, DJ Paul," she says of her favorite tracks. I love 'Witch Brew' because Will Power tuned into my dark, gloomy, wicked side that everyone has, topped off by my gothic sis Fefe Dobson on the hook! It's a great intro for the album."

Accepting the balance of family and a music career is often a challenge for artists, but La Chat is strong in her convictions. She is excited for this new phase in her craft, while holding on to what is most important to her: "I'm a Mother first, and I'm in beast mode with this music!"

In keeping with the philosophy to stay true to oneself while going against all odds, Gangsta Boo attests that everything she does is to bring fans closer to her bold brand of independence.

"My fans should know that I'm 100% true to my word, and over the years I've learned to be comfortable in my own skin, growing into my adult womanhood. I'm 20 years deep in the game, and I'm a seasoned veteran with game for days. It's game involved in all I speak. Pay attention, rewind a lyric if you have to. You'll see."
